SVD Face: Illumination-Invariant Face Representation

  title={SVD Face: Illumination-Invariant Face Representation},
  author={Wonjun Kim and Sungjoo Suh and Wonjun Hwang and Jae-Joon Han},
  journal={IEEE Signal Processing Letters},
In this letter, we propose a novel method to extract illumination-invariant features for face recognition and verification under varying illuminations. Inspired by the fact that normalized coefficients of the singular value decomposition (SVD) are insensitive to different illumination conditions, we exploit a simple, yet powerful scheme for describing underlying structures of faces, so-called SVD face. In contrast to previous approaches still suffering from the loss of details, our SVD face… CONTINUE READING
